SeekersHub Answers | Is It Obligatory to Complete Recitation of Quran in Ramadan?

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: Is it compulsory for every Muslim to complete recitation of the Qur’an at least once in the month of Ramadan? I ask because sometimes it is difficult to complete the Qur’an due to being busy.

Answer: Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

It is recommended, but not obligatory, for those able to complete the Quran in Ramadan to do so.

If difficult for one:

a) one should strive to read as much as one can in an effective and moving manner (such that one reads with reflection);

b) one should try to listen to as much Qur’an as one can, while maintaining at least minimum attentiveness to the recitation. There is great merit, reward, and benefit in listening to the Qur’an.

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,
Faraz Rabbani
